The United States played England to a tie at the World Cup Saturday (June 12), thanks to one of the worst goalkeeping blunders ever.
The two teams finished with a 1-1 tie in their opening World Cup match, thanks to a goal by Clint Dempsey in the 40th minute of the game that dribbled off the hands of English goalkeeper Robert Green and into the net. It was pretty much the definition of a soft goal, as you can see in the video above, but it still counted and the U.S. was able to get a point in Group C.
Steven Gerrard scored England’s goal in the fourth minute.
The United States plays its next match on Friday against Slovenia then wraps up group play against Algeria on June 23.
Did you watch USA-England? What did you think of Dempsey’s shot and Green’s mistake?
